Default color quality between coolpix 5700 and cybershot DSC-F717??

recently i am using a basic 1 mega pixel cam. and really like to upgrade it to about 5 megapixel cam. i have come across 2 models.
nikon coolpic 5700 and sony cybershot dsc-f717 .. i would like to ask if any of photographers out there have used both models. i would like to ask about the color quality and picture quality and ease of use? in my line of work, sometimes i need the quality of texture and color , detail.
so i would like to ask for suggestion about both cams, about their color and quality?
thank you so much for ur hlp

When I was searching for a 5MP camera last December I also narrowed it down to the Sony F717 and the Nikon 5700.

I purchased the F717 thinking it was the right choice. I also have the Sony TRV18 MiniDV so having 2 FM50 batteries on hand put me at ease ;-) . The F717 is a great camera however, if you want the colors to match your subject then I suggest the 5700. The F717 captures reds, greens and blues too vividly for my taste.
See the difference below, they were the only comparison shots I have left, I trashed the others.


I ended up taking the F717 back after 2 weeks and exchanging it for the 5700. No regrets.
